. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> steve: okay, that was a mitt romney ad saying they were going to build jeeps in china and it was labeled a lie. now it seems the joke is on them. chrysler announced 100,000 jeeps will be made in china next year just like mitt romney said. and joining us to weigh in on this is the president of founder of less government, good morning. >> good morning, sir, how are you? >> i'm doing okay, remember mitt romney from the great state of michigan and knows a lot about the car companies, he said you know, chrysler are going to wind up making jeeps in china the left wing media explode heed. >> yeah, ne did the lie of the year for "the washington post" and turned out to be factually accurate. i am reminded of dan rather, the documents were false, but accurate. this was exactly what, if you'll recall, paul ryan in his vice-presidential speech and in other places pointed out that barack obama gave a speech in janesville, wisconsin gm plant and said we're going to keep this open for a hundred years with the auto bailout and they closed it sta
giffords. on the anniversary, republican tucson city councilman steve kozachek, known in tucson as steve k., organized a gun guy-back that allowed residents to turn in the unwanted weapons to the police department, in exchange for safeway gift cards, the grocery store chain that was the scene of the giffords shooting. they collected and destroyed more than 200 guns in that drive. but not without opposition. the national rifle association, of course, opposed the buy back and told npr that it will work with the arizona state legislature to re-write the law in order to make it illegal to destroy firearms in buy-backs. and one republican state senator even held his own gun buy-back on the same day as steve k. instead of destroying the guns, he and other gun rights advocates added them to their collections. just days after, he wrote this. the arizona republican party is an idealogical outliar, i see nothing showing that it is inclined to move anything but further away from the values of this community. i will, therefore, be changing my party register to democrat. joining me now, the rather than
. basically steve is saying this eliminates some uncertainty and that would help. we see consumer confidence at lows again. >> absolutely, brenda. look, this is how every family operates. they don't go out and make plans we're going to build a new addition to the house and do this and that and we don't have any money to pay for it. let's borrow more. i think steve is right. this should be a regular conversation because as he points out. we've not had a budget passed by the senate in the last four or five years, for crying out loud. >> there has to be check and balance. jonas says let's get rid of it. my gosh let's get rid of everything and spend whatever we have out there. so like todd said we could stimulate the economy and all of that spending hasn't worked and buried us in a deep hole and we need to pay attention to this stuff. air right-- >> if the ceiling works, how did we get in the mess? it's been raised 119 times, and. >> exactly, it shouldn't be, it shouldn't be raised at all and that's why you should have the budget and stick to it. reagan was wrong, clinton was wrong, bush was wro
's so much to tackle here. get it? football. tackle. yeah, i know sports. >>> i'm steve kornacki. what's the name of the movie where the washed up producer creates a synthetic woman and then the world finds out she is not real? oh, oh. simone! this is just like that. isn't it, s.e.? >> i have no idea but manti te'o, i have some questions, like, what is an online relationship and be specific. >> i'm toree. manti's the talk of the nfl. will this hurt the draft chances? will he be forced to become a jet? we don't want you! >>> it's thursday, so obviously i'm starting with sports and this is no sports metaphor, folks. it's a real story that rocked the sports world and developing minute by minute. bear with me because this thing is kree si. there's this football player named manti te'o. >> yep. that's true. >> that's true. a star for notre dame. >> true. >> yep. >> famous university and during the final college season the team is on the way to a national championship. >> sort of. >> he is a candidate for the heisman award. >> that's real. >> early in the season, we learned that he's playing
in the eyes of god and also in our own. >>. >> joining me now, steve kornacki and krystal ball, co-hosts of "the cycle" here on msnbc. thanks for joining me. >> thank you for having us. >> the man once talked about ending the partisan divide accepted that republicans in washington seem to respond better to power politics, it seems. >> there are some things you cannot change. and i think that's one of the things that we learned is in the first four years republicans decided their only goal really was to obstruct and oppose him. and if you don't have a willing partner on the other side of a negotiating table, it doesn't matter how many olive branches you extend. if there's not a hand willing to reach back, then it's not going to be helpful. nothing good is going to come out of it. and i think he also realized the power of taking the case to the american people. you know, this speech was boldly progressive. it outlined a progressive vision for the country. when you think of the individual elements eluding to immigration reform, voting rights. lbgt equality. all of these things individ
it. so we've seen it before. >> and i agree with steve on that, he has the audacity to disagree with me somewhat. i actually think the republicans looked at the fiscal cliff, they passed the senate bill, said it is up to you. they basically blinked and said we don't want to go over the cliff. so they know they don't really have it will them to want to default on the debt ceiling. the landscape is different from 2011, yes, they're still nutty and responding to that calculus. i don't think they're quite as credible in terms of actually causing a default. and take what? social security and medicare benefit cuts, that is tremendously unpopular, it would be a disaster. but also a catastrophe for the republican party. >> and this comes at a moment where they're being criticized from kind of all sides. i want to listen to something colin powell said yesterday about their identity problem. >> i think the republican party right now is having an identity problem. and i am still a republican. i think what the republican party needs to do right now, take a hard look at itself. the country i

low amid weak consumer reports for the iphone 5. down from its high of more than $700. steve, what gives? after a poor fourth quarter, apple was supposed to turn it around here in the new year. >> yeah. i mean, let's get this in perspective. they've still got 15% of the world's smartphone market, that's up from the previous figure of 14%. the problem is these google androids. they're selling in greater quantities than apple's. you're right, the share price was 705 bucks back in september. at one point they had a $498 handle, back to $501. there's concern they're ordering less components, and that means they're expecting less sales in the first quarter of 2013. a little better news for dell, 13% as the struggling pc maker looks like it may well be in talks with a couple private equity guys to potentially take the company off the market and go private. >> steve, let me ask you about walmart. yesterday they announced their plans to hire any military veteran who wants a job. amazing story. how many jobs do they expect to give out? >> yeah, this could be 100,000 jobs over the next three
to this inauguration? >> pelley: and steve hartman "on the road" with two coworkers who thought they had nothing in common until he told his stories of battles long ago. >> he's someone that i will never forget. i will tell my kids his stories. i'll tell anybody his stories that want to listen. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening. one american has been killed in that hostage standoff in algeria. frederick butaccio was an employee of the oil company b.p. we don't know how he died but u.s. got sources tell us his body has been recovered. a top official says tonight that at least six americans have survived but others have still being held. u.s. military transport planes landed near the scene and evacuated survivors. some of them described as lightly wounded. all of this is playing out at a natural gas plant in the sahara desert. it began three days ago when terrorists who claim a link to al qaeda attacked buses carrying employees and then took over the residential section of the complex. algerian forces then attacked the terrorists.
of kentucky talks about the president usurping the constitution. republican texas congressman steve stockman talks about impeaching the president if he takes steps to upgrade gun safety by executive order. remember sharron angle, the nevada republican senate candidate talking openly about using second amendment remedies against public officials? people used to think she was alone out there, something of an oddity. what's becoming clear is in today's gop, she's more typical than not. ed rendell was governor of pennsylvania, michael steele was chair of the republican party. gentlemen, thank you. president obama will announce his plans for gun safety tomorrow after hearing vice president biden's task force recommendations, but already criticism is mounting on the right. here is republican senator rand paul of kentucky. >> i'm against having a king. i think having a monarch is what we fought the american revolution over, and someone who wants to bypass the constitution, bypass congress, that's someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch. i've been opposed to executive orders even with repu
point out how hard this is going to be to get through congress. but representative steve stockton of texas appeared on fox news talking about impeachment if the president tries to push this forward. take a listen. >> we want all tools available to use, including that impeachment. using children reminds me of saddam hussein when he used kids. >> alice, i want to get your reaction to this. we have had presidents in the past use executive orders to push through gun control legislation, whether it was bush 41 or bill clinton. no one then talked about impeachment for those presidencies. why does the right have to go to such language based on the fact that we're looking at a massacre at an elementary school? how come the right doesn't want to talk logically about what can be done? >> well, i think that language is a little harsh but the truth is there's a reason why the president's going to be flanked with small children at his press conference today, as he begins his p.r. campaign, and why he's talking about using executive action on this issue when it comes to gun control, because he
pushing the more aggressive measures to end gun violence. steve bashir -- or governor steve bashir said i am a hunter and gun owner, but we all must be open to ideas, and most importantly of our children in schools. during the short session that begins in february. in your estimation and your suggestion, what steps should your state and other states be taking on a local level to end gun violence? >> well, actually, i talked to my mayor fairly frequently, one of the mayors against illegal guns. and unfortunately the general assembly in kentucky has prohibited local options. in fact, in my district in louisville, if police confiscate weapons, they actually have to auction them off, they can't destroy them. so they guarantee there's absolutely no reduction in firearms. that's unfortunate, but it's kind of symptomatic of what we face in the country. there are rural states where there's a great legacy of hunting and gun owners. it's much harder to get anything done that in marineland or new york, where an urban environment is much more dominant. >> sir, i wanted to get your take on a completel
of the 44th president of the united states of america. nbc's steve handelsman has more. >> reporter: they wowed the crowd at the inaugural balls. president obama in white tie but first lady michelle obama in a ruby red gown by jason wu. this was the ball for the military. >> i have no greater honor than being your commander in chief. >> reporter: it had been an obama family day. malia and sasha, dad and mom. as america paid tribute. an inaugural parade that showed off the nation's talent and diversity. >> i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear. >> reporter: the presidential's ceremonial swearing-in witnessed by as many as 1 million people. >> congratulations, mr. obama. >> reporter: mr. obama urged cooperation, rare now in washington, to cut health care costs and the deficit. >> but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will buildi its future. >> reporter: we can make progress, he said, on immigration, gay rights, climate change and school safety. a night to remember for the ob
inaugural address. one thing was almost missing, though. jobs. joining us with more is steve moore. he laid out his agenda, a whole host of things. why not focus on jobs. does he think that this recovery is so on track that jobless rate will continue to fall, steve? >> i was struck by that also. in the whole speech, he did not talk about jobs. he did not talk about private business and entrepreneurs. it was a very pro-government speech. the president has a big challenge ahead. we still have a near 8% unemployment rate in this country, chipolte, over the last four years of this suppose it recovery. i do not think he mentioned the word jobs in that entire speech. dagen: three times. we did a quick count. >> i stand corrected. dagen: if you go through the list of things that he covered, that he wants to tackle, i said gun control at the top, immigration, climate change, equal pay for women, i could go on, but if he focuses on this, what does that do to the economy? what does that do to jobs? if you look at the broad overall agenda, i do not think a lot of this helps the economy much and i do n
correspondent and steve clemons is the editor-at-large for "the atlantic." richard, it's great to have you with us safe and sound. let me ask you about that. i had a sense as a political observer that the president was talking directly to the mullahs, to the people over there who really have the power, saying, look, maybe we can avoid a war, avoid a bombing campaign by us or israel if we can talk away from this weaponization of nuclear arms over there. how did you read it? what happened over there? >> i think he was talking to a lot of different audiences, and he was saying that i'm different than the previous administration. i'm not president bush. a lot of people around the world still remember the united states even though there's been four years of a barack obama presidency for the wars in iraq and the wars in afghanistan and military interventions and the drone policy, and he was trying to say we can work peacefully. we have to build on the peacemakers, and i think that is a message that will be received by people in iran, will be received by certain communities in iran, but there is
nut job, steve stock man, a former member of the house happens to be in ron paul's district in texas. steve stock manman thought obama staged waco. he now says that he'll say obama's executive actions are unconstitutional and will affect the right to keep and bear arms. he goes on to say, i will speak to thwart this action by any means necessary including but not limited to defunding the white house and even filing articles of impeachment. he's going to defund the white house. >> cenk: i'm curious how that's going to happen. and of course immediately before we have the second term, the talk of impeachment comes in. let's go to omar swhari. his sister was killed at virginia tech. omar, we really appreciate it. >> thank you for having me on. >> cenk: first let me ask you you about president obama's actions today. >> i don't think they go far enough and there is more we can do to have a far reaching approach to gun violence prevention. >> cenk: what about the orders he signed today. are they helpful or just a matter of appearance. >> i think they're pretty helpful, very helpful. after m
: that's a more moderate and sane g.o.p. response. the full crazy came from texas congressman steve stockman who said he will try to defund the white house or file articles of impeachment if that's what it takes to stop the president from passing laws designed only to save american lives. which is not to say that congressman stockman doesn't have supporters. no former reagan attorney ed meese said stockman would have a good case for impeachment of high crimes and misteds against this president. we're only telling you what ed meese thinks about this because smirnoff and irrelevant '80s figures weren't available for comment. what would the president like congress to pass? jay carney was a lot more clear on that. >> there are specific legislative actions that he will continue to call on congress to take including the assault weapons ban including a measure to ban high-capacity magazine clips including an effort to close the very big loopholes in the background check system in our country. >> john: an assault weapons ban that senate majority leader harry reid said likely wouldn't pass t

amount of joining us now, charles krauthammer. and justin powers and steve hayes. charles? >> obama has showed in his first term that he thinks large. he sees himself as a historical president who will change the united states. he actually said, in the way that reagan was historically... important president in a way that a clinton or a nixon was not. he sees himself in that mode. he has accomplished in the first term something revolutionary, with national health care, that liberals have dreamed of for a hundred years and succeeded in increasing the tax scplefl spending level in a country that was unprecedented. so i think he wants to go very large in the second term, in that -- i think we he will try to do it on immigration. initially, he will try on guns. but i think he wants to push us towards a european state -- more entitlementsments and raise the revenue so we become much more like a european social democratic state. he might have some success. >> i think a lot of liberals would be thrilled if that was the case. you hear this a lot, that he is going to be this transformational pers

representative steve stockman, responding to the president's press conference. >> if he thinks these bills are good, his law is good, he should go through congress. he's not a king. reminds me of saddam hussein when he used kids. >> jennifer: the question, which is coming out of all of this is whether the president should fight for rational policy that he knows will not pass an irrational house of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonnell, a 6-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her artwork >> obama: i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived. and the life that lay ahead of her. and most of all, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace, this fight is worth waging. and for her this fight may even be worth losing in the short term anyway. because while the president might be able to squeak out an unsatisfying victory a small and ugly bill riddled with loopholes and signifying nothing, perhaps in this instance, the better c
